FarmVille Fairy Festival: Everything you need to know

Summer often means making time to travel to fairs and carnivals, but the folks at Zynga are hoping that you'll take a few minutes before summer ends to experience their own carnival (of sorts) in FarmVille. This new feature is called the Fairy Festival, and you'll find the items associated with it on the outskirts of your farm. This feature has six stages that can be completed over time, and you'll eventually end up with a real item that you can keep and store when you're done (that is, if you finish it in time). We're here with a guide on how to earn this Fairy Festival for yourself, straight from Zynga, so let's get started!

Stage 1:

  • Earn 5 Sweets

The sweets are earned by posting a general news item on your wall, asking all of your neighbors for help. You'll also be able to earn sweets by clicking on your friends' news posts as they too work to collect their own sweets. You'll receive the Sweets Booth for finishing this quest.

Stage 2:

  • Get 7 Ferris Wheel Chairs

  • Get 7 Motor Parts

  • Get 7 Light Sprites

These items are earned through a combination of general news posts on your wall and individual requests sent to friends. You can also purchase them with Farm Cash, but regardless of how you collect them, you'll receive the Sprite Bloom for finishing this virtual Ferris Wheel.

Stage 3:

  • Invite 8 Friends to Join in the Fairy Festival Building Crew

You'll receive the Festival Dragon when completing this stage.

Stage 4:

  • Collect 10 Sets of Plans

The Plans are similar to the Sweets in the first stage, in that you'll earn them by posting a request to your news feed and can earn more Plans by clicking on your friends' matching posts. You'll earn a Mini Fair Barn when you complete this fourth stage of the event.

Stage 5:

  • Get 10 Boards

  • Get 10 Enchanted Nails

  • Get 10 Fairy Fabric

Again, these sorts of items are earned through a combination of general news feed items and individual requests, and you'll earn a lovely Fairy Pegacorn when you complete this stage.

Stage 6:

  • Get 10 Friends to RSVP to the Festival

For completing this final stage of the event, you'll receive a completed Fairy Festival. Actually reaching this point is easier said than done, however, as you'll be timed in your quest to complete each stage and will really need to manage your time wisely in order to finish them all in time. Good luck!
